Plumbing Inspections

Our plumbing inspection services involve a thorough examination and assessment of a building’s plumbing system to identify potential issues, ensure compliance with regulations, and provide recommendations for maintenance or repairs. Plumbing inspections can be scheduled for various reasons, including routine maintenance, property transactions (such as buying or selling a home), or as part of compliance with building codes.

Here’s what’s included in our plumbing inspection services:

1. Visual Inspection:

  • Piping and Connections: We inspect the visible pipes, connections, and fittings throughout the building to check for signs of leaks, corrosion, or damage.
  • Fixtures: We examine sinks, faucets, toilets, showers, bathtubs, and other fixtures to ensure they’re functioning properly and not leaking.
  • Water Heaters: The water heater is inspected to verify its proper functioning, check for signs of leaks, and assess its overall condition.
  • Drains: We check drains in sinks, tubs, and showers for clogs and ensure proper drainage.
  • Ventilation Systems: Ventilation systems, including vents and traps, are inspected to ensure they’re properly installed and preventing sewer gases from entering the building.

2. Testing and Measurement:

  • Water Pressure: We measure water pressure to ensure it’s within the recommended range. Low or high water pressure can indicate underlying issues.
  • Flow Rate: Flow rates from faucets and fixtures are measured to ensure adequate water supply.
  • Drainage Performance: Testing drainage systems helps identify clogs or slow drains that could lead to blockages.
  • Gas Lines (if applicable): If the building has gas lines, we them for leaks and proper pressure levels.

3. Leak Detection:

  • We use various techniques to detect leaks, such as visual inspection, pressure testing, and sometimes infrared technology to identify hidden leaks behind walls or ceilings.

4. Compliance and Code Verification:

  • We verify whether the plumbing system complies with local building codes and regulations. They ensure that proper permits were obtained for any installations or modifications.

5. Report and Recommendations:

  • After the inspection, a detailed report is provided to the property owner or relevant parties. This report includes findings, identified issues, recommendations for repairs or maintenance, and potential cost estimates.

6. Preventive Maintenance Suggestions:

  • Based on the inspection findings, we provide suggestions for preventive maintenance to avoid future plumbing problems.

7. Certification or Compliance Documentation:

  • Depending on the purpose of the inspection (such as for real estate transactions), we provide certification or documentation to indicate that the plumbing system is in good condition or that necessary repairs have been made.

Our plumbing inspections are valuable for identifying problems early, ensuring safety and compliance, and helping property owners maintain the integrity of their plumbing systems.
